Greek tycoon hoping to seal Nottingham Forest takeover in next fortnight

Date Posted,April 16, 2017

Evangelos Marinakis hopes to seal his takeover of Nottingham Forest in the next fortnight.

Marinakis, also owner of Olympiacos, and current Reds owner Fawaz Al Hasawi are believed to have agreed terms on a 100 per cent buyout.

The Greek tycoon is understood to be awaiting the green light from the Football League to complete the deal.

Marinakis has been cleared of all allegations and charges he faced regarding match fixing in his homeland

He was consulted on the recent appointment of Mark Warburton at the City Ground, with the current manager’s job thought to be safe should the takeover go through.

Marinakis has held a longstanding interest in buying the Reds and rekindled his interest after a move to but the club by an American consortium led by John Jay Moores fell through.

The deal is not thought to hinge on struggling Forest staying in the Championship.

Meanwhile, Reds midfielder David Vaughan, 34, is eager to sign a new deal with his existing agreement due to end in the summer.

He said: “I definitely want to stay, yes. It is out of my hands.

“I just have to play well, hope that we stay in this division and that I can prolong my stay at Forest.”
